Description: Best-selling author Lora Brody has spent much of her life exploring the many culinary treasures of this alluring peninsula, and in The Cape Cod Table she shares her favorite regional recipes.
Of course you will find tender, succulent fried clams here, and the world-famous Wellfleet oysters, which are turned into a warming stew or dipped into beer batter and fried! But this book goes far beyond seafood treats. The fishing families of Provincetown offer Portuguese sweet bread and kale soup with spicy chorizo. The Cape's bountiful cranberry crop is used in salads, desserts, drinks, and sauces. Other local produce, such as apples, pumpkins, and beach plums, is turned into pancakes, bisques, and jams.
There are plenty of classic Cape dinners, such as clam chowder, grilled bluefish, and baked stuffed lobster, and because Cape Cod is, after all, quintessential New England, there are also such offerings as chicken pot pie and the traditional New England boiled dinner.
So come and enjoy the simple, fresh food of "this bare and bended arm" with its "landscape of extraordinary brilliancy," as Thoreau called Cape Cod, and bring a touch of New England into your kitchen, wherever you live.
